along the lower mississippi river, there's less resistance, and it flows a little faster. the velocity of a river also tends to increase if the amount of water in the river channel increases. the quantity of water moving through a river is called its discharge. the discharge of a river is how much water it's actually carrying. we usually measure this as a volume per unit time. the united states commonly says cubic feet per second. most of the world uses cubic meters per second moving down the channel. discharge increases from the head of the stream to the stream mouth as the drainage basin increases. there's simply a larger area to contribute discharge, to contribute flow to the streams. the primary way that a river functions geologically is to transport not just water, but sediment, down slope and toward the oceans. the faster a river flows, the more efficient this process becomes, so geologists are acutely interested in flow velocity. when the flow velocity of a stream is relatively high, the energy of the moving water is converted into processes that lift chunks of bedrock or sedime

. by virtue of intimidation or at least confusion. here's how it works in the great state of mississippi. in the great state of mississippi this past november, a referendum passed saying people couldn't vote without documentation. that many thousands of mississippi residents do not have. yesterday the department of justice told mississippi that given the special scrutiny that state earned under the voting rights act for many years of suppressing the black vote, given that special scrutiny, the justice department said no to this new proposed law in mississippi. or at least they said not yet. this law is at least not going to be in effect for the november election in mississippi. you're not going to have to show i.d. to vote in mississippi. the worry here was that because thousands of mississippi legal voters don't have the i.d. that would have been necessary under the new law, this new law would have kept disproportionate numbers from voting on election day. that law is now technically been blocked by this justice department letter. what if you could get that impact on the the electorate

of mississippi got hit the worst. the storms as far as the official tallies go about 77 storm reports, the blue dots are the damaging wind reports, the red is the tornado reports. we had three of them. it appears the one near yazoo city and to the south of meridian did the most damage. a couple thousand without people in central mississippi and the storms have weakened. a look at that storm that did cause the issues. here it was as it went through the meridian, mississippi, area. now in south central portions of alabama. it has weakened significantly. no longer a tornado threat but in monroeville you're going to get gusty winds, hear the lightning and thunder and those storms should be passing by within the next hour. otherwise, the storms have weakened significantly. it looks like these storms heading down toward i-10 will produce heavy rain. this storm in the northern plains got blown around from oklahoma northward, winds gusting up to 50 miles an hour. still windy behind that storm in iowa through missouri. it's cloudy, cool, raw up here from the dakotas all the way through the great lakes a
